Steamed or braised collard greens with garlic and a sprinkle of fresh lemon are naturally gluten-free. A relative of the cabbage and broccoli family, they are low carb and rich in fiber and many valuable nutrients, such as vitamins A, C and K, plus several of the B vitamins. They also have a variety of minerals, such as potassium, phosphorus and calcium, to name a few.
These collards can be served as a side for pork loin chops or chicken pieces for a paleo dinner, with a baked sweet potato as another side. I like to accompany them sometimes with Cajun rice or blackeyed peas to complement their texture and flavor for a vegetarian dinner. In the photo above they are shown with Shredded Barbecue Chicken.
The GlutenTox Home Testing Kit is one of the two home food gluten-testing kits which Al and I consider to be credible.
We conducted 2 tests which we are reporting on in the video below. We tested a regular, saltine cracker from a generic brand available in our local convenience store. This test is our control and demonstrates that the product does in fact detect gluten.
For the demonstration, Al videoed the process while I tested a sample I took from a slice of pizza made from Bob’s Red Mill Pizza Mix for gluten.
A summary of our test findings is provided after the video so you can see what we thought of the GlutenTox Home Testing Kit.
